A lot of people - clients, prospects, and contacts in my network - come to me saying, 😤 “I’m frustrated with my VA, they aren’t doing what I want!” 😤 “Why isn’t my team more proactive?” 😤 “I have to pick up the slack and work keeps ending up back on my plate!” If this sounds like your experience with your team, it’s probably not their fault. 😲
Anytime now, right? You did all the things that your coach, the books, and the blogs told you to do to grow your business. So anytime now, your freedom-filled entrepreneurial lifestyle is supposed to start, right? But maybe you're still waiting because...
Is one of your fears being taken advantage of by your VA? A contact reached out to me for a referral because she was convinced that her VA was taking advantage, padding her timesheet, and just plain not hearing what she wanted. Before she hired, she was nervous, but she jumped in excitedly anyway. Now it seemed like her nightmare was coming true...
Asana. Trello. ClickUp. Monday. Airtable. Notion. Basecamp. Hive. Smartsheet. Keap… OH MY! Are you thinking about any of these project management softwares? It can feel so overwhelming to pick the perfect project management software and I’ve seen so many business owners sign up for tons of free trials, never to log into the software again. And worse, I’ve seen business owners PAYING for project management software subscriptions - only to manage their tasks through their emails and Google Docs.
Maybe this year, you’ve crossed over the 5-figure/month mark in your business (YESSSS🎉🎉🎉) And now you’re reaching for your next level. You’re following Traction to a T. You got the business coach and the next level strategy. You’ve upgraded your tools and tech. You hired a VA and maybe an OBM. You’re checking all the boxes to scale your business, but something still feels off… 😕😕😕 and you’re not quite sure what. 🤷🏻♀️
Can we celebrate for a second? You’ve come so far. You made it through the wild ride that was 2020. You came with it hard and 2021 is your best year yet. So what’s up for the rest of 2022?
Do you know what happens when you not only build systems, but understand how they work and why? You might be thinking… ”Meh, systems are NOT my jam” or “I don’t really need to care because I’m going to outsource my systems.” Which is totally fine, most of my clients usually feel like that… at the start.
Does it seem like I have it all together when it comes to systems? That wasn’t always the case and I’ve definitely had my fair share of less than perfect systems. One of the biggest system mistakes I made was when I tried to delegate my client calls. It was an unmitigated disaster du jour.
I’ve been around the operations block a few times. I spent so many years launching multi-million dollar hedge funds and running million dollar businesses, that when it came to running my own, I felt like I was invincible… until I wasn’t. 🤭 When I launched my business, I was growing at a steady pace as I honed my services and execution to turn my clients into raving fans.
You built your business online so you know how to use tech. You have the basics down and they’re working… sort of… 👀 Except for when you lose track of your work leads in your inbox. 👀 Expect when you manually onboard your client. 👀 Except for when you realize you can’t find your client docs because you accidentally deleted them during your last CleanMyMac hard drive scan…
